41-Year-Old Man Who Was Wrongly Convicted, Gains Freedom After 23 Years In Prison

Lamonte Mclntyre

A native of Kansas, 41-year-old Lamonte Mclntyre who was wrongly convicted of a double murder has gained freedom after 23 years in prison.

It is a pity that he had spent more than half of his entire life in prison, his first words were: "It's nice outside."
He was originally convicted at the of 17 with no physical evidence to link him with the 1994 murder cases.

A judge was reconsidering the case in court hearings that were scheduled to last into next week, when the new prosecutor in the case said Friday in a news release that new information cast doubt on witness identification of Mclntyre as the killer, and that a jury might have not convicted him.

"In light of information learned by my office since I began in January, " Wyandotte County District Attorney Mark Dupree said, "my office is requesting the Court find that manifest injustice exists."

The people investigating the daytime shooting when he was arrested, never issued any search warrants nor discovered a link Mclntyre and the victims.

"The investigation was hasty and superficial," said the Midwest innocence Project, which helped free Mclntyre.
